“No problem... A few hours after posting it online I panicked. Didn't this thing start with a trapeze? So I went back and researched the trick and decided to run the current video.
Thanks again,

“TLMB thanks for the post. You are correct on the trick having a traditional trapeze mount. The original Sector-Y site had the trapeze start (described Cold Fusion as a complicated trapeze trick) as did the short lived Yo-Yo World Magazine Vol. 1 Issue 2 September/October 1999 pgs 50-51).

Then something happened, which I think is probably the posting of an online video with the double-or-nothing variation. This non-traditional variation has become adopted as the official trick for many contests.
World Yo-Yo Contest 2011 description:
“11. Cold Fusion: [VIDEO]
Start with a Double or Nothing. Bring your Throwhand under the yo-yo, landing it on the outermost upper string, and then push your Throwhand index finger into the double strings. Bring your Freehand under the yo-yo, landing it on the outermost upper string, and pull your Freehand index finger out leaving you in a 1.5-mount. Sling the yo-yo over towards your Freehand, and then back over your Throwhand, letting the yo-yo wrap around your index finger one more time. Unravel the wraps and land the yoyo back into a trapeze hold. Perform any dismount and return the yo-yo to your hand by the method of your choice.”

If competing in a trick ladder this would be a good trick to check with the judges on how they want the trick to start. It may need the trapeze in the UK to be accepted as the correct trick. I don’t have too many players nearby in the desert and learned to throw many tricks from a forward pass including the Spirit Bomb. At the National Yo-Yo Contest in Chico, California the judge informed me that the breakaway needed to be used for the trick ladder… then asked to see the trick thrown using backspin of a forward pass. He had never seen the trick with a backspin throw.
Thanks again,

“"Cold fusion confusion?" Well, yes, since (in the UK at least) this trick has traditionally started with a standard trapeze, which is then rolled into double or nothing. From then on, I'm with you all the way.”
